MADRID (AP) — Spanish authorities say Belgian police have arrested a suspected top member of a terrorist recruitment network based in Spain that allegedly sent militants to carry out attacks for al-Qaida-linked groups in Syria.
A Spanish Interior Ministry statement said Ismail Abdelatif Al Lal was arrested Thursday in Vilvoorde, north of Brussels, on a European Arrest Warrant issued by Spain.
Police detained eight suspected members of the network in June in the Spanish north African enclave of Ceuta. It arrested the group's suspected leader in Ceuta on Sept. 16.
The statement said Al Lal was the group's financial chief.
The group allegedly trained the militants at bases in Ceuta and in neighboring Morocco.
The ministry has said the recruits fought against the Syrian regime and some had taken part in suicide bombings.
